pathophysiology2
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • DEFINED
    • Involves the study of function that results from disease processes.
pathophysiology3
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • What is pathology?
pathophysiology4
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • Pathology is the branch of medical sciences that treats the essential nature of disease, especially the changes of structure and function in tissues and organs of the body that cause or are caused by disease.
pathophysiology5
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • Why is pathophysiology studied?
pathophysiology6
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • In the clinical setting, pathologists, histotechnologists, and cytotechnologist study tissues and cells to establish the cause of a disease.
  • Physicians use that information to form a treatment plan.
pathophysiology7
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • What is a pathologist?
pathophysiology8
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • A pathologist is a physician who is specifically trained and experienced in anatomical and physiological pathology.
pathophysiology9
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • What is a histologic technician or histotechnologist?
pathophysiology10
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • Histologic technicians and Histotechnologists prepare slides of body tissue for microscopic examination.
  • Career opportunities for both are excellent in hospitals, research institutions, industrial labs, and government agencies
  • A technician requires a 12-month, hospital-based on-the-job training program or an AAS degree.
  • A histotechnologist requires a BS degree and one year of additional laboratory experience.
pathophysiology11
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • What type of studies are performed in the clinical pathology laboratory?
pathophysiology12
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • Tissue of all types are sent to the histology department for studies into the disease process.
pathophysiology13
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • The pathologist studies the tissue by doing a gross examination.
pathophysiology14
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • Tissues are looked at closely and all observations are recorded.
pathophysiology15
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • The tissue is then prepared for microscopic studies by placing it in a tissue cassette.
pathophysiology16
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • The histotechnologist prepares the tissue for microscopic examination. This is done by using the embedding center. The tissue is placed in paraffin wax in order to cut thin slices of the tissue.
pathophysiology17
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • The embedding center instrument
pathophysiology18
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • The histotechnologist pours paraffin wax over a tissue specimen.
pathophysiology19
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • Once the tissue is embedded in paraffin, the block of wax is cooled. The histotechnologist then cuts ribbon-like sections for placement on slides. The instrument used is called a microtome.
pathophysiology20
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • A water bath is used for spreading the paraffin ribbons and sections are placed on microscope slides to be stained.
pathophysiology21
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • Tissues are stained at the staining center. The basic stain for all tissues is the Hemotoxylin and Eosin (counterstain) stain.
pathophysiology22
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • Special stains are used for particular details. They include:
    • AFB-Acid Fast Bacilli Stain
    • PAS-Periodic Acid Schiff Stain
    • Trichrome Stain
    • Iron Stain
pathophysiology23
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • The pathologist then studies the slide to determine pathological states within the tissues. A written report is then given to physician to aid him/her in the diagnosis and treatment of the patient.
pathophysiology24
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • Pathologists also perform frozen sections for patient’s in surgery on the Cryostat.
pathophysiology25
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY
  • Exciting opportunities await students who want to explore the physiology of the tissues and cells under the microscope!
